  • Divergent



    Another unimaginitive kindergarten sermon on class and control ... Ironically portrayed by white middle class folk.

    Set in a time where facial expressions are outlawed and any tension or drama is banned, "Divergent" features a standard set of standard PG traits as our class-busting heroin, Tris (played by Katniss Everdeen) beiges her way through "dystopian futures 101" with the help of the cast of "Streetdance", token brown girl, sweatless training montages, another predictable bird tatoo, hipster music from three years…
